Twitter has added a new option to its tipping feature that allows you to receive tips or suggestions in Ethereum cryptocurrency by adding your Ethereum wallet address.
This makes it the second supported cryptocurrency tipping option on Twitter after bitcoin. Other newly added tipping options include Paga, Barter by Flutterwave and Paytm.
With so many tipping options available, it’s even easier to tip or leave a tip on Twitter. So, the next time you see a great piece of art or helpful material, for example, you can easily tip the creator in Ethereum.
How Tipping Works with Ethereum on Twitter
A money icon will appear on the profile page of Twitter users who have Tips enabled. If you use an Android device, you can also see the Tips icon on people’s profiles in Twitter Spaces.
Tap the Tips icon using your Android or iOS device. You will be redirected from Twitter to that person’s preferred third-party payment service where you can send your tip.
Provided the recipient has set Ethereum as their primary tipping option, you can tip them in Ethereum using their displayed wallet address. Transactions are handled by payment processors who may charge fees, whereas Twitter doesn’t charge you anything.
